Re: Keep the FFE or move on?

First you say it didn't even bend the frame. Then you say you needed to be cut out.

Do you think you would have been fine in the Focus? I've totaled three cars. In none of the instances would I have been better off in something as small as the Focus.

Re: Keep the FFE or move on?

Your accident wasn't catastrophic, either. I'm simply waiting for the F150 to come out. I also have a problem called brand loyalty. Add that to the previously mentioned loan on the car, and I'm about a year and a half out. For now I will gamble with my safety. :roll: I did try to fit into a Superfor...

Re: Keep the FFE or move on?

It simply takes one person not paying attention or driving crazy to kill me in the little Focus. I'm 6'2" and I take up most of the space in the cabin as it is. Just because someone was in a fender bender with a semi doesn't mean semis don't smash people to death on a daily basis. I drove my crew ca...

Re: Keep the FFE or move on?

I actually work only a few hundred yards from the factory in Fremont. Has anything changed, other than MUCH, MUCH more demand for spare parts as the sales volumes increase? https://www.sfgate.com/cars/article/tesla-repair-wait-time-complaints-electric-car-13796037.php Since any EV I own will be at l...

Re: Keep the FFE or move on?

My aversion to buying a Tesla is mostly the service network and spare parts availability scare the hell out of me. No thanks. I'll go with the established supply chain. Plus, let's be real. I'm a Ford guy and brand loyal.

Re: For Sale: FFE 2017, 12k miles, Bay Area, excellent condition

It might be worth 11 or 12k. Half the lifespan of the Red Sticker has been consumed at this point.

Re: Keep the FFE or move on?

If for one can't wait to move on. Not because the Focus isn't good, it's just fine for basic transportation. I just want something bigger and faster. I like the Mach E, but probably would rather have an electric F150. I still owe $14k on my Focus, so probably a year and a half out from buying someth...

Re: Mustang Mach-E

I like it. The pics of the one with a faux grill look even better. Most folks aren't ready for no grill I've found. Now, the rank and file Mustang fan is losing his freaking mind over this thing being called a Mustang. Frankly, if they slap a Mustang emblem on it, then it's a Mustang. Life's too sho...

Re: AC not reliable in warm weather

My 2018 with 16k miles works very well. It was parked on asphalt in 100 degree temps today. When I left the office, it took less than 10 seconds to start blowing colder, and no more than 1 minute to have very cold air. It maintained that as I drove 30 miles, including some long stop lights- and 80 M...

Re: Road trip (rental)

When you say "up" do you mean up in elevation? If so, throw your mileage estimates out the window.
